1988 Mercedes-Benz 190-SeriesHello, ith deep regret I feel the time has come to pass on my most prizedpossession, y pristine 1988 Mercedes Benz 190e 2.3. Original California car since purchased from Caliber Motors in Anaheim Hills CA on October 11, 988. ***Please note, am the 4th owner***
Car justreceived fresh Mercedes Benz oil change at Fletcher Jones Mercedes-Benz Newport Beach on saturday 10/24, s well as a complete wash and detail. No expenses have ever been spared.
I purchased this exceptional 1988 Mercedes-Benz 190E 2.3 on Jan 28, 015. The car was acquired from the second owner sometime in May 2014 by thethirdowner. Then Ipurchased the car in January 2015.
Previousmaintenance that I am aware of prior to my ownership was done in 2006 at Ruben's Imports in Dana Point included replacing the water pump, nd thermostat at 80,000 miles. Also during another routine service as dated under the hood, n 2005 the air conditioning was completely and professionally retrofitted from R-12 to R-134a.
Since my ownership, his car has been just about 100% restored, osmetically as well as mechanically. Such restoration includes, ut is not limited to, OTHING but OEM or equal Mercedes-Benz quality replacement parts such as: ALL BRAND NEW REPLACED SINCE 2/2015.THIS CAR IS JUST ABOUT ALL BRAND NEW.

And now a little insight as to why you want a 1988 Mercedes-Benz 190E and not an earlier or later model. The early model 190E's have a thin body trim and is much more appealing in my opinion rather than the thick body skirt look of the 190E's from 1989-1992. 1988 was the last year with the thin body trim, ut first with tilt sunroof standard, s well as the "check engine light" ODB1 computer diagnostic system, nly equipped on california cars. Let alone to mention the astonishing color combo of 702 Smoke Silver Metallic and 175 Creme Beige MB tex vinyl. This car is 100% original quality paint and interior.
The steering wheel is firm and thick, ot soft and squishy from years left out in the california sun. The horsehair in theseats are firm and comfortable, ust as they were brand new in 1988. The dash is very clean, et shows 3 small cracks near the speakers from age sadly.The airconditioner cools youimmediately to comfort. The instrument cluster flaunts slightly faded orange needles but overall inoutstanding condition. You will not find 1 single stain on any square inch of the carpets or seats on the entire interior, o food is allowed inside the vehicle. The car does not smell as some older Mercedes-Benz do, ut apleasant clean smell. The original radio and antennafunction 100%. All 8 glass windows on the vehicle areoriginal Sekurit or Sigla, ith 1 blemish to the drivers side windshield which has been "glue" patched at some point. The vehicle comes with a nice large stack oforiginal dealership 1988 190Ebrochures as well as manuals, nd original dealership licenseplate insert from Caliber Motors in Anaheim Hills in 1988. Thehandling, hocks, nd suspension, re ever so tight much as a Mercedes-Benz can be expected to feel. All door andbody panels exemplify theiroriginal VIN# sticker, xcept the right rear quarter panel, he trunk lid, nd rear bumper, ere all replaced by Mercedes-Benz in 1997 [hence the european warning triangle in the trunk lid] No noticeable body works signs whatsoever.
FLAWS:Unfortunatelywith any vehicle 27 years old, laws are expected. Although there are hardly any major flaws on this car. Now I understand that the new owner may be purchasing this 190 fromseveral miles away, nd a pre-purchase viewing will only be initiated if the car fits suchcriteria, hich i will try my best to expose in the photos. ***Please note, ehicle was purchased with alldamage previously done***1. 3 deep Scuff/Scratch; Lower left rear quarter panel and left rear corner of bumper.2. Spider-web scratches on roof from cheap drive-through car washes from previous owner3. Faint Clearcoat fading on driver side door arches above door handles4. Very small "Buff-burn" on left side of hood ridge, smaller than half a penny.)5. Good sized key mark on rear passenger side door.6. 2 small dings on passenger side A-Pillar7. INTERIOR: 3 small cracks around speakers on dash8. "glue-filled" rock chip on driver sidewindshield
Everything works on this entire vehicle just as it did the day it left Caliber Motors Anaheim hills in 1988. The ONLY reason I am selling is because I have finished restoring this 190E and am ready to pass her on to a new home who will garage and pamper her just as i do.
